External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid on Friday refused to comment on Bharatiya Janata Party prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi's marital status.


"I neither want to make any comments on anyone's private life, and, nor would it be correct to do so," Khurshid said.

While filing a poll affidavit on Wednesday in Vadodara in Gujarat, Modi has for the first time acknowledged that he is married to Jashodaben, a retired school teacher, from whom he had separated decades ago.

Modi wrote the name Jashodaben in the column titled spouse. He had kept it blank during previous successive state elections that he had fought in the past.
